I saw a drawing table like this a few years ago but couldnt afford it, So I decided to make my own.
I did it all from memory and stayed within nominal dimensions, worked out well.
I made a few changes such as using dowels to construct it and a beautiful 1” fir plywood for the top,
which is special to me becuase of it’s age and source. The rest of it is cabinet grade baltic birch with a few pieces of pine for latteral supports. very few mechanical connections, only a few where the most stress is like the hinge ledge. I used to be an illustration major and I’ve been drawing things since I could hold a pencil. So a nice table was always on my bucket list.
I mainly use it to redraw some older scroll saw patterns and a place to throw all the bills and mail.
I have yet to put a finish on it which will be a clear poly and may laminate the top with a matte black formica.
Thanks for looking!
-- I cut it twice and it's still too short!
